Germany - Turkey, 2016, 60’, color
In 2013, Rüzgâr sets out to make a documentary about a close friend Şevval, a trans LGBT activist. The timing of the documentary coincides with a transformational moment in Istanbul during the 2013 Gezi Park protests and the subsequent Pride march. The documentary shifts focus and we travel the streets meeting many activists instead of one, and get a sense of LGBTI activists’ contribution to the protests; we feel their exuberance, their hopes, and share their sense of humor. #resistayol is a fresh, exuberant documentary that reminds us of the many lively colors of human living.

Pera Museum presents an exhibition of French artist Félix Ziem, one of the most original landscape painters of the 19th century. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
Pera Museum, in collaboration with Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), is one of the main venues for this year’s 15th Istanbul Biennial from 16 September to 12 November 2017. Through the biennial, we will be sharing detailed information about the artists and the artworks.
The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
